A Shot at Life: Join the 2 Million Pet Challenge
Give shelter pets a shot at life.
According to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), between 6 and 8 million dogs and cats will be left at shelters each year. Animals that are healthy, well-fed, and disease-resistant have much better odds of finding a happy forever home.
Preventable diseases like kennel cough or feline herpesvirus can stop an adoption in its tracks — not to mention being a danger to unprotected populations in the shelter. Although shelters try to meet the needs of their animals, they may not be able to afford a timely delivery of much-needed vaccinations.
With your help, Greatergood.org and Petfinder Foundation have teamed up to change that. Together, we can vaccinate 2 million shelter animals in just two years, protecting them from common, contagious, preventable diseases. We challenge you to help us give shelter pets a shot at life.
You can make a difference! Just $10 vaccinates 5 shelter pets.
Report from the Field
Ulysses Animal Shelter in Western Kansas knows the challenges of adopting rescues still waiting for their vaccinations. Thanks to the Shot at Life program, Skywalker (pictured here) found his forever home:
Skywalker was a Husky that came into the shelter. Skywalker is a very friendly and playful guy. Huskies are hard to place in Western Kansas due to multiple reasons including the weather as well as lack of knowledge on the part of possible owners on the challenges that owning a husky has. Skywalker was accepted to a rescue out of Colorado.
Thanks to having his vaccination already given we were able to get his additional vetting done and get him out of our shelter quicker and on to a rescue where he was adopted out in July.
Petfinder Foundation works with shelters, rescue organizations and animal welfare organizations across the country, providing direct funding, training, education, and grants of equipment and supplies. No adoptable pet should be euthanized for lack of a good home, and by helping shelters become more sustainable, Petfinder Foundation hopes to ensure that none are.
